Let’s say we have 1 pizza and 8 people. Everyone wants a fair portion of the pizza.

In this scenario, we must divide the pizza equally among 8 people. One way to do this is to cut it in half which makes 2 pieces. Each piece is 1/2.

Then cut each piece in half again, and we’ll have 4 pieces.

Then again and we’ll have 8 equal pieces.

1/2 × 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8

So half of a half is a ¼. Half again is ⅛. ⅛ for each person.
